the president's policies turned the united states into a welfare state. how is jay carney managing the media. goldberg with must-see analysis tonight on "the factor." 24/7. i'm sorry, i'm just really reluctant to try new things. really? what's wrong with trying new things? look! mommy's new vacuum! (cat screech) you feel that in your muscles? i do... drink water. it's a long story. well, not having branches let's us give you great rates and service. i'd like that. a new way to bank. a better way to save. ally bank. your money needs an ally. wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing.

not provide enough time for testing? >> kristen we are focused not on monday morning quarterbacking. >> jay carney has perhaps the toughest job in the u.s.a.
? >> you are hearing the essence of new liberal ichl. this is the ultimate paternalism. this is jay carney explaining the president and the president himself today saying, look, the only reason we are cancelling your plans is because you are too stupid to understand what you need. we are giving you a better plan. sure, you like the plan. sure, you chose the plan. sure, you paid for the plan and renewed the plan. but you don't even understand that this is substandard as defined by a bunch of experts that we slapped together to issue regulations in washington. it is the essence of the entitlement state, the essence of the nanny state. you can't have a drink over 16 ounces. you can't have health insurance you chose and you like as a free citizen because we know it is not good enough. that's the essence of obama care. it is the essence of the larger project of liberalism. it was grating today when you heard it. >> he didn't come out and say let me be honest. i know i said "period." i know i said this is a guarantee sh period. i was wrong. this is how i was wrong. there wasn't even an honest, l
hope he'll do better than jay carney did. he reformulated, you can like your plan if under the following exceptions and x, y and z. the truth is, he was talking about a small sliver, those on the individual market, as opposed to the corporate market, or rather the other way around. it's going to be hard for him to make that face and it's not going to fit on a bumper sticker. >> yeah, and goes to the complexity of a market that everyone knows was not perfect to begin with. that's something krystal was speaking about in some depth yesterday. the notion that most people are on their employer based coverage. and those are the people he was talking to, make some sense. it's been cloudeded -- definitely clouded, i think, disingenuously in the sebelius exchange today. what is she going to do when they know exactly under the law what happened to those folks. in fact, that was the whole discussion in congress, as well. about all of their employees. dana, thanks for spending time with us this hour on the speech. >> my pleasure. >> all right. i think that does it for us. we're going t
, many more people are going to get cancellation letters while white house spokesman jay carney a few moments ago insisted health care costs are coming down because of the law. take a listen. >> there's a report out this morning from "forbes" that says over 90 million individuals are going to lose their health coverage that they liked and that they had before. that's not to say they won't have access to something, but it's not going to be what they want, it's going to be what the government forces them to buy, and that's just not how our system ought to work. >> fact one, costs have been going up dramatically in health care for decades, and that has put enormous pressure on american businesses, and that's what brought about a situation where costs for individuals on employer plans were going up and a lot of businesses, especially small businesses, were eliminating health coverage for their employees. and these are problems that the affordable care act was designed to address. >> reporter: so, as the battle rages on, it's clear the president's credibility has taken at least a hit in re
points since earlier this month. jay carney was asked about it and here's what mr. carney had to say. >> everybody gets hurt when there's dysfunction in washington. i think it's accurate to say that the dynamic has proven worse for republicans because i think it became so starkly clear by the actions they took that they were responsible for what happened but everybody gets hurt. >> am i to understand that president obama's bad poll numbers are the republicans' fault, too? is that actually what he's saying? >> well -- >> because he doesn't think president obama is part of the dysfunction. >> i think he said that everybody is suffering at this point. but what i want to point out is what i think is the problem for democrats, and i can say this i think very objectively, that the problem that we're going to see these numbers falling because the dysfunction is going to be shorthanded. people are going to associate this dysfunction with a broken website. that's not a good situation for the president to have such a trivial label attached to what is such a more macro dysfunctional environment
of them have been aired, showed in fact they weren't ready and they knew they weren't ready. today jay carney said the president was shown this website ahead of time as though it was ready. so figuring out who inside the organization knew but failed to communicate is important. but more importantly because there's so many other areas including risk of private information coming out in a website that isn't ready, we need to ask those questions and see the -- what's internally going on. >> mike rogers, chairman of the house and intelligence committee, asked tough questions about whether or not information people provide to that website about their social security numbers, their income, whatever, is really secured. you want to subpoena information to show that they knew in advance the security, the cybersecurity, was not adequate? >> exactly. we need to know who knew, why they should still be on the job. you know, there's more complex information. do you realize that tax i.d. information is in there, voter information is in there? this is a very important link to a also of private informa
from president obama to press secretary jay carney insist they have not blocked any benghazi witnesses from talking to congressional investigators but then you hear u.s. senators talk most notably senator lindsey graham say that is always in. the administration is blocking the witnesses. one thing is clear. someone is fuming the facts or even lying big time. they can't both to be right to. stop the drama the back and forth, foot dragging and finger pointing. wouldwouldn't you like it put them in the same room. we deserve the truth and it would be nice to be spared the political drama. that's the problem with washington. it's all about the fight. never the facts. and that's my off the record comment tonight. if you have an important story or issue you think i should take off the record, you know where to find me, gretawire.com. tell me all about it and, while you see them here on fox news all the time. charles krauthammer is also a plulter is prize winning author. nice to see you charles? >> pleasure to be here. i like this set. >> pretty fancy. it's pretty nice. new home it? >> is my n
-election chances. moments ago, white house pretty secretary jay carney denied that claim. good morning america will have much more on the double down books which comes out next week. but the show, good morning america, is coming up at 7:00. >>> a fresno area woman is suing mcdonald's after suffering burns from hot coffee that spilled in ler lap while she was going through the drive through. a jury award stella lyback nearly $3 billion for her burns 20 years ago. back then, mcdonald's kept its coffee between 108 and 190 degrees. franchises now keep their coffee about ten degrees cooler, but it's still as much as 30 degrees cooler than the coffee you make at home. 70-year-old joan fino wants to change that. >> i went in to get coffee and, you know, it's their fault. it was too hot and the lids weren't on right. >> her attorney admits she didn't suffer million dollar injuries, but they're suing for millions, anyway, claiming mcdonald's is still putting profits over people's safety. mcdonald's has not commented on the soup. >> when i buy a coffee, i have to stick it in the microwave or heat it up
keeping their insurance. nicole wallace laid into spokesman jay carney over it. i want to play a small portion. >> the public believes your boss, and you know as well as i do when the public stops believing your boss, he is rendered impotent. so how do you make the public believe your boss when the two things that were said to reassure people, that they could cope their health plans and they could keep their doctors, turn out to be not true? >> so, governor, ezra klein puts this in perspective for us, a fascinating blame game with the problems. you can see where the arrows are pointing. so is the test of the gop and the sabotage and blame game going to be born out for democrats come 2014? >> well, that depends. i think right now the odds are with the democrats. i think the republicans have essentially eliminated their brand as a serious contention in american politics. not to say they're going to go away, they're not. but nobody believes anything they say. the problem is we've got to deliver this. it has entirely to do with democrats. the republicans are irrelevant to this debate. they
on this issue of credibility and trustworthy. jay carney punted this question over the insurance market and said, the problem, which has always been the problem, insurance companies in that wild, wild west of the insurance market could arbitrarily cancel, change, downgrade those plans at any time and many of them have over the last several years. that's true. but it's not like the white house didn't know. >> by the way, i don't recall that being the applause line in the 500 speeches i had to sit through. i mean, this is clearly they were either misleading or weren't quite aware of it. i don't know what the heck it was. the thing i find incredibly striking here, the president keeps telling us how angry he is. he hasn't told us he screwed up. at some point down the line people are going to want to hear why he didn't oversee the system more. >> if he does that, he can really only do that once this thing is really working well which could be months and months from now. >> nor do i think it makes good sense or politics. this president is not running for re-election. what he does have to do is protect
is the kind of propaganda this administration has done since day one. >> jay carney pushed back on all this saying they knew numbers would be bad at the beginning and obviously that was exacerbated by the fact the website was not working well. they think the website is getting better now and as people shop around as you were just talking about over time they are actually going to start enrolling but on the question of why they haven't released some of their own numbers, here's what he said. >> why don't you at least put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we'll have a reasonable accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis consistent with the data release that you see for other programs. and the focus here -- for understandable reasons, i guess, is on how low the number might be and i think -- listen to me now. they were always going to be low. enrollment figures for the first one. that's how enrollment periods work. >> that first month is up. here we are november 1st. where are those numbers? jay kacarney says they need abo two more week

and jay carney is speaking at the white house right now. >> are you speaking to countries and now they have left this subject. moments ago, this is from our correspondents that are in the white house briefing. the question is any sense of what happened? >> the answer was the president was briefed on the incident. we are in touch of federal almost agents on the ground. lapd is leading the response. when i did that, it powered through. we also have an eyewitness account who was on the ground and saw much of this. the person's name is brian atomic. he was boarding a spirit airlines gate 32. the 30s gates are all there together. we saw the spot where it was on the ground. this witness was at 43. imagine a rounded area. circular area with gates all around the circle he said he was getting ready to fly to chicago for his brother's wedding. away from the secured area. he went through an emergency exit to the tarmac i heard two gunshots from the same area where the people had been running and screaming. when he got outside he said buses showed to help evacuate passengers. he saw the wound
house press secretary, jay carney was asked during his daily briefing. here's what he had to say. take a listen. >> the president has been briefed on the incident at los angeles international airport. by alyssa mass extra monaco, chief of staff, and he will be updated. at this point the lead is the lapd, but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground, and will -- the president will be updated as the afternoon progresses. >> now, at this point in time, there appears there are no plans for the president to speak about this. president obama currently meeting with iraq's prime minister, norelle maliki, this was supposed to be the president's health care website, but, of course, renewed discussion about the issue of guns and gun violence as this white house continues to monitor the situation at l.a.x. back to you. >> all right, kristen, thank you very much. the shooting at l.a.x. is, of course, affecting air travel everywhere else. that is, perhaps, the least of the issues with one person dead and several injured. but that is something that a

grandfathered in. >> that was white house press secretary jay carney a few moments ago. tomorrow health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testifies before the house energy and commerce committee. it will be the first time she'll field questions. and joining me now live, senior political editor, mark murray, let's talk about in nbc report and the information we know and confirmation from sten y hoyer that you have individuals that will receive cancellation letters and won't keep their plan. those who bought individual health insurance make up a sliver of the overall market and the law now gives these people more substantial insurance and protections than they have before. that is the fact there but you still have individuals who have gone on the website and see in some cases their premium go up and make it more in return for that but it's not going down well, at least at this point. >> well, it all has to do with tradeoffs under this law and reform. when you look at the toe talty of the affordable care act, the people with preexisting conditions and people who have very expe

by white house press secretary jay carney today as alleged proof that the president is seizing health care from honest americans. take a listen to this. >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. maternity care is covered, prevent active services are comfort, mental health services are covered. the insurance policy you buy doesn't have an annual limit or lifetime limit. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards, and therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> so people won't be able to be ripped off by substandard plans. what a pit. but is this the line of -- is this line of attack proof that the website will be fixed and republicans then will really have to move on? >> not only do they realize that. let's take a step back and see who they put ahead now to fix this -- the computer glitch. it's jeff zients. jeff zients headed up the advisory board, a health care company that pulled together best practices in the health care industry. so he k
a list of dozens of fixes to be done by an outside contractor. here's jay carney with an update. >> we have acknowledged that healthcare gov has not performed adequately and the president is not happy about that. secretary sebelius is not happy about that. that is why we have dedicated these focus resources to fixing the existing problems. >> reporter: existing problems and now an extension with a six- week extension. of course you have until the end of march to sign up. some republicans and some democrats now are joining together to talk about maybe having a one-year postponement. meantime the medicare chief largely thought to be responsible for the launch of healthcare.gov will be testifying late other capitol hill. secretary came lien sebelius -- secretary kathleen sebelius will be in the spotlight tomorrow. >>> voters in virginia will be electioning a new governor in one week. the gender gap for the main party candidates, "washington post" survey gives democrat terry mcauliffe 51% of the vote and republican ken cuccinelli 39%. however, among men, cuccinelli has a slight lead, 45 to

obvious. you talk to people around town and you hear complaints like that constantly. bill: jay carney said it is preposterous and inaccurate. what did you think of his reput ball. >> like most of the things jay carney says these days. insurance companies are out there talking to the customers to expand health care, play blah. when the white house puting a gag order on someone. it doesn't you have to be absolutely mute. it means you can't say things we don't want you to say. that is what the insurance companies are being forced to do. they're not allowed to say what is really going on. not allowed to give their own numbers what is happening. not allowed to defend themselves from this new campaign of demonization. bill: what would be your solution for them? the insurance companies could speak with one voice, could they not? >> i don't have a huge amount of sympathy for the insurance companies. they made this bed. they're lying in it. this is one. props with crony capitalism, when you get in bed with the government the government gets to call the shots. at the same time you know they est
house spokesman jay carney today, and chief congressional correspondent be mike emanuel is live on capitol hill, that's where we given. mike? >> reporter: well, jon, good afternoon. the way the law has been interpreted here on capitol hill, leadership aides and committee aides of relevant committees would be exempt from obamacare, would be allowed to stay on their current federal benefits. some lawmakers are trying to intercept the law more broad -- interpreted the law more broadly to try and exempt more staffers to keep them on the federal land. but in a recent fox news poll, 92% think members of congress and their staffs should be required to live under the laws passed for the american people. but for lawmakers who oppose obamacare don't want anybody to live under it, some say this is a mess. >> my own staff has tried to go on the system, and they're given a raw number, but they don't know if they're buying dental care, they can't tell if they're buying health care, and when they click to the page that says here's the details of the plan you're buying, there's to -- there's no
finance agency. it was 56-42. that was the cloture vote. they needed 60 to move forward. jay carney at the white house briefing which is wrapping up now over at the white house says the white house is, quote, enormous -- the news was enormously disappointing. that's from jay carney. and a tweet just a short while ago from the assistant leader in the house, james clyburn saying, quote, i'm disappointed by the senate vote today on the watt nomination. senate's coming back in at 2:00 p.m. eastern and you can follow that coverage on c-span-2. while we wait for the president, we'll take you back to the news room of mother jones from this morning's "washington journal." host: what is dark money? guest: dark money is this term that we've used to describe the secret money that is flowing through our elections at the state, at the local and of ourse at the national level. we've seen an explosion of what we call dark money and it's this money where we don't know who the donors are. we don't know in many cases how the money is actually being spent. and so we have made it a priority of ours her
to be lowering expectation. here's press secretary jay carney yesterday before the dismal numbers came out. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is, yes, because that was always going to be the case. martha: live from the white house with more on this, ed henry. it doesn't sound like the administration is on track to enroll its goal of seven million americans in obamacare this year, certainly. >> reporter: right. and what they're trying to do now, martha, is manage expectations. that's what jay carney was doing there. they're trying to compare it to mitt romney's situation oh so many years ago. in the early days people shopped around, talked to their spouse, and then they make a decision closer to january 1st. we'll see how all that pans out. but as you say, these early numbers are embarrassing. it's nothing short of embarrassing for the administration. day one, six people enrolled. and as you say, this is from the administration's own internal notes at the health and human services department. it was released by a republican critic, darrell issa, but he's getting info
